Baits & Lures
Ledgering for perch is pretty simple; all you need is a simple running or paternoster rig with a fluorocarbon or thin wire trace and, depending on the size of the fish, a size 4 to 8 wide gape hook. The best baits for ledgered perch include live bleak, roach and rudd, as well as lobworms, prawns and maggots.
In order to help you improve your bream fishing, I have decided to write this helpful guide on the best baits for common bream.
